Subscribe

You can track all active APARs for this component.

 

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Deleted KPIs of a business process definition (BPD) or activity
    reappear in the KPIs list after you close and reopen the BPD or
    activity.
    
    PRODUCTS AFFECTED:
    IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) Advanced
    IBM BPM Standard
    IBM BPM Express
    

Local fix

  • Re-delete default KPI after import to higher level BPM
    

Problem summary

  • In some situations, deleting a KPI does not mark the BPD or
    activity as changed. As a result, the deletion of the KPI is
    ignored. If you reopen the BPD or activity or import the project
    that you expect the KPI to be deleted from, the deleted KPI i
    displayed in the KPI list again.
    
    Another reason why the deleted KPIs reappear could be a toolkits
    dependencies error. If an error was displayed beside the toolkit
    dependency, correct the error by removing this dependency or
    updating the dependency to a correct version. A dependency error
    could prevent references to KPIs or other artifacts from
    resolving correctly. To remove or update a toolkit dependency,
    right-click the toolkit dependency and select the action you
    want.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.5.5.0 that ensures deleting
    KPIs marks the BPD or activity as changed and that the deletion
    is persisted in the next Save operation.
